Oona Brangam-Snell, “Canaries in the Coalmine,” 2021, Jacquard Woven Polyester and Cotton with Hand Embroidery, 49 x 40 1/4 inches, 124.5 x 102.2 cm

Across seven jacquard-woven and hand-embroidered tapestries, Oona Brangam-Snell builds layered scenes that distort universally popular symbols. Intrigued by how we individually interpret common imagery, she interrogates established visual conventions in her surreal compositions.By combining symbols from heraldry and folk art with references to comic book ephemera, Brangam-Snell uses each to undercut the other and sets a tone that is both playfully ironic and tenderly serious.
